Are this the symptoms of prostate cancer?

My father is 60 and today he fell unconscious for a couple of seconds on the bathroom floor after he was nauseated. He s eyes were wide open and when my mother panicked and screamed...he came back to consciousness. This is the first time this has happened. Sometimes he sweats around the chin area and he looks like he is not all there. His eye look blurry and he looks very unhappy (almost depressed). Not known medical conditions except for frequent urination at night. He believes it could be prostate problems....possibly even prostate cancer . He has been exceptionally physically strong all this life and until recently he jogged on the street almost daily. He had a drinking problem 15 years ago but he has not had any alcohol since then. He doesn t smoke or do drugs. Like most men his age....he has a little bit of a belly brought by aging ....not by obesity . He is very stubborn and refuses to go to the doctor for fear that his company will lay him off. Plse suggest medical condition

i wish that i could tell you exactly what it is but nausea can be associated with a number of things. I suggest that tomorrow you call his primary and get a appointment for him. They may want to run test on him to get a proper dx. Good luck to you and your family
